The Manor Center is a service helping adolescents (aged 12-18) who suffer from adaptation difficulties and psychiatric disorders and who have trouble continuing to function at home, in society, and at school.
The center has a multidisciplinary medical, paramedical, and educational staff, including a classroom under the supervision of the Ministry of Education which offers academic studies at a level commensurate with the child’s age and ability. Every adolescent has a unique study program designed for them (in coordination with their previous educational framework), and there is ongoing contact between the educational frameworks and the Manor Center homeroom teacher, according to need.
During treatment, an individual and group treatment (psychotherapy) program is determined for every child in line with their needs. In addition, there is a weekly psychiatric evaluation and follow-up, with ongoing contact between the center’s therapeutic staff and the parents, including ongoing parental guidance by the professional therapist accompanying the boy or girl.
The therapy program at the center is suitable for young people suffering from psychiatric disorders, who require more intensive treatment than that given in a clinic and whose academic functioning is generally poor due to the basic psychiatric disorder, but who are independent regarding daily functioning (eating, bringing the required equipment, maintaining personal hygiene) without exhibiting behavior which immediately endangers themselves or others.
